How to Treat Bed Sores?

The first step in treating a bedsore is to keep all pressure off the area. If it is ulcerated, you can clean it with a gentle cleaning solution like betadine soaked in gauze. As you clean it, you would work from the center outward so the debris is taken away from the ulcer. If it appears infected, you should contact the patient’s Dr. so he can prescribe an antibiotic.
